The Victorian State Government introduced Freedom of information legislation in 1982.

Rick Snell, the editor of the Freedom of Information Review and lecturer in law at the University of Tasmania, has welcomed reforms proposed by the Victorian government for its freedom of information (FOI) laws. The new Victorian Premier, John Brumby, has promised to introduce legislation "to ensure that, except in national security cases, only real Cabinet documents will be exempt from FoI." [1]
